All of them pretty much! Ok crap answer. 5-9-77 I've always loved - just them nailing it hard core out of the gate. And all the 75 ones are excellent. Especially the GAMH one where the band comes on during the intro. These are obvious ones but still incredible none theless. I find the Slipknots from 76 to be more intense but I still prefer the ones where they dont ease into the beginning like 76 but come out swinging. The thing I find weird is how they had it down perfect then completely dropped it in 77 not to be played again until 83. Weird to me that Jerry would pick up one of their most complex tunes during that time. I think I was only luck enought to see a couple of them in person - 6-15-90 and 2-21-91 ( might be more I'll have to look it up ). The depressing thing is out of one of the ONLY shows I arrived to late the band actually started on time ( 6-15-90 ) and had to listen to most of it trying to get into the dreaded shoreline ( hate that venue ). Why oh why couldnt they have started with Touch instead?

1977-05-09 is probably my favorite

1977-06-09 is very good of course. one of the greatest shows ever played

One From The Vault has an amazing help on the way

1975-05-28 - great choice Cliff. I love this one too, very unique version

Road Trips 1.2 is excellent
